    (i) BulkRegister, and most other registrars, sell domain names to resellers and not directly to consumers and individuals.
    This is incorrect.
    (ii) If you actually bothered to check ANY of my .NAME registration information, in regard to these domains, you would have seen with your own eyes that these particular .NAMEs have ALREADY been designated as belong to their ultimate rightful owners and NOT ME.
    I'm glad that you admit that you are not their rightful owner, perhaps we are getting somewhere. I did check some of your registrations, as I already gave the example of bulk.register.com which seems to be their info but is your email address as the contact. Ditto for sir.jamespaulmccartney.name, though I think it unlikely that his, or anyone's but the operator's, phone number is +0.0000000000. I think it more likely you entered that other information to make it appear at a cursory glance that the domains are owned by the rightful parties. If you truly wanted their info in there you'd put their email contact addresses as well. Of course that might awaken them to the fact they're being squatted on. In other cases such as the.wtc.name it is all your contact info. That is because there is no rightful party, and that includes you.
    (iii) My client's information and that of any recipient of a free or at-cost gift from myself is nobody else's business other than their's and mine.
    I've already tried to answer that. If you post in public, as you did here touting your names, expect a response. So is Paul McCartney your client? Or are you just commonly known by that name? Note that there is a difference between AKA and 'commonly known as'. If you are commonly known by the names of each of the Beatles, and some members of their families, then your friends aren't just out the money they lent you, they're as loopy as you are.

    Continuing along, are Duran Duran or The WTC your clients? If not, are you commonly known by those names? We know the answer to all is NO. And is the Queen your client, or are you just commonly known by that name? We know at least the first part of that is false.

    (including only out-of-pocket expenses, which is clearly allowable under ICANN's UDRP Rules.)
    As I've pointed out elsewhere, $500 per name is not reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. All the panelist(s) will have to do is look for actual evidence of such expenditures and the jig is up.
    I suggest you check your facts better before ranting and raving against me.
    I suggest you point out any of my 'facts' which are incorrect, though I think you would be better served worrying about your own reputation. Sooner or later the UK media may pick up on this story about you trying to get listed in the Guinness Book of records as the world's biggest dumbass. -g
